The Maze Runner was a great read. It did not take me long to get through and I cannot wait to see the movie and read where Dashner takes this next. The Maze Runner is about a society that is ran completely by young boys who have found themselves placed inside of a Maze by who they call ‘The Creators’ and they have one goal of trying to survive. The catch is that they do not remember anything that has happened to them, they only remember their names and some vague memories of what things are. They spend each day sending out “Runners” into the Maze to try and see if there is a way out of the Maze and each day they return with no report of a way out. Out in the maze there are dangerous creators called “Grievers” who will kill them if they get the chance. Because of that the number one rule of ‘do not go into the maze after dark’. When Thomas is brought into the Maze via the box, he begins to change everything. People who have been through the ‘Changing’ are claiming that he is going ruin them all, and soon after days that should be normal end up changing and life as they know it is altered.
This was a really fun read! It was fun trying to figure out why they are in the Maze, how they’re going to get out, and the changes that Thomas and the boys have to face. I cannot wait for this movie to come out, the cast looks phenomenal, and I love Dylan O’Brian who is playing Thomas. If you’re looking for Hunger Games or Divergent type of book this is the one for you. I cannot wait to see how the rest of the series plays out, and I hope you have fun reading it as well. Until next time,
